I don't get it. I can go out and buy Transformers comics, but when I want something more substantial, like a novel, I'm crap out of luck. I remember the early 90's when Marvel and DC were all publishing novels and I read the hell out of them. I don't even think I was reading the comics at the time. They finally brought out a trilogy of books and an anthology, and even though they weren't the best, I loved sitting in a chair and being able to read about the Transformers for a few hours at a time. Nowadays we still have a ton of Star Wars and Halo books out, but Transformers gets nothing except maybe a movie tie-in. I want some original novels and I can't be the only one. What I'd love to see is some high-profile writers tackling our favorite subjects. Michael Crichton writing about a small team of Autobots checking out an outer space anomoly. Stephen King writing about the Fallen trying to raise the dark god Unicron. Some mystery writer (I don't know any except Tony Hillerman and he's dead) writing about Nightbeat searching for some ancient Transformer artifact. I'd read every one of these and more.
